Teacher perspectives on digital tools in the Grades 4-6 English classroom (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how digital tools are used in English teaching in Grades 4-6, in what ways these can further develop the teaching and what advantages and disadvantages are. The data collection was carried out through an online questionnaire and additional interviews. In one month, the questionnaire was completed by 141 respondents and qualitative interviews were conducted with three teachers. The result shows that teachers' attitude towards digital tools was positive, and teachers gladly used such tools in English teaching. However, further education is needed to develop a better and more effective use of digital tools in English teaching. Generally, the teachers thought that digital tools are a good complement to the regular study material, and they are used several times a week.   

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur användandet av digitala verktyg sker i undervisningen i engelska på mellanstadiet, hur det utvecklar undervisningen och vilka olika fördelar/nackdelar det finns. En online-enkät och kompletterande intervjuer genomfördes. Enkäten var öppen i en månad och fylldes i av 141 respondenter, och kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes med tre lärare. Resultatet var att inställningen till digitala verktyg bland lärare är positiv, och verktygen gärna används i engelskundervisning. Dock behövs det mer utbildning för att utveckla användningsområdet för digitala verktyg i engelska. Verktygen anses vara ett bra komplement till de ordinarie läromedel och används flera gånger i veckan.
